Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

Kenmore Microwave door adjustment

I have a Kenmore Microwave model 62622200. The hinges for the door are to the left when facing the microwave. The door seems to fit tightly enough, but droops slightly downward so the right side of the door (the handle side) is slightly lower than the hinge side (left side) of the door. I am afraid microwaves may be escaping when the microwave is used.
Can the door be adjusted to correct this problem? If an adjustment can be made, how would this be done?

Depends on the door. It likely can be adjusted they have 2 screws on the door bracket you may have to remove the cover to see them. But it also needs to be checked with a leakage meter to make sure its not leaking.

RadioShack used to make a low cost meter not certified or anything but a good way to see if its leaking.

Kenmore microwave model 721 loose door


Loose bottom hinge - slide the microwave to the edge of the counter, and look at the bottom hinge - you may have to remove something to see clearly. Its likely you are missing a screw or the screws have worked themselves loose.

How do I adjust the door switchs


Remove the grill on top and there will be a screw for the control panel. Once the control panel is tipped down you can see the door switches . Adjustment is a combination of the switch bracket and door hinge adjustment, You should have access to a Rf leak detector to inspect the door anytime the hinges or latches are serviced.

We need to change the door on our microwave. We have the new door, but can't find anything in the manual about removing the old door. It is a Frigidaire Gallery series above range microwave. Any...


The door should come off fairly easily. All you have to do on MOST microwave ovens is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins.

On some models, there may be a small hinge pin on the top hinge that you remove, then lift up.

You may have to remove the grill panel above the door (if equipped) to allow for clearance for the door to come off.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

Frigidaire gallery microwave door sags


Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.

Door is loose, microwave won't cook


The door switch mounts and possibly the door hinges need to be adjusted them tightened.

Unplug the oven, remove the cover if it's a counter top type or remove the grille and control panel if it's an over range type.

Then close the door and watch how the door latch heads on the door mesh with the door lathes and door switches.

Also check the hinges.

If the door latch heads are not activating the upper & lower door switches, then adjustment will be needed.

For many brands, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There is often a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Please reply back with your brand and model number if you need more help.

Loose microwave door


My over the range microwave had a loose door, it sagged when it was open but you could lift it to close. Called repair person he said no it could not be fixed. You could see the bottom hinge was loose and slipping. I loosened 3 screws that holds the bottom on the microwave -you have to do this to change the light bulb also. The bottom hinge on the door was loose there was a hole there, so took a screw and nut to hold the hinge in place..I am a 70+year old woman-if I can you can.
